What's Happening Now?

The Muddy River Restoration Project progresses. Dredging, bridge restoration, habitat improvement, and landscaping work are ongoing throughout Olmsted Park, the Riverway, and Back Bay Fens. At the Justine Mee Liff Park across from the Landmark Center, the focus is on maintaining the newly restored landscape and honoring Olmsted’s original vision for a continuous, meandering Muddy River. At Charlesgate, a new public park is taking shape.

The MMOC oversees this work on behalf of the public and keeps you updated. We welcome your questions and comments.
